Johnny Manziel Friends Concerned ... 'He's Gonna Die'

5/24/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0523-johnny-manziel-tmzsportsJohnny Manziel's drinking and drug use is worse than ever -- but the QB refuses to seek help ... and now people close to him are convinced he's going to die unless something changes soon.  

Here's what we know ... Manziel has become even more reckless with his drug problem recently -- even blowing lines in front of people he barely knows.

"He's in a horrible downward spiral," one source very close to the QB tells TMZ Sports.  

There have been multiple serious attempts to help Johnny -- with one group of close friends recently sitting him down and "confronting" him about his situation. But, as one source put it, "He flipped out and would not hear it."

His friends are desperately trying to get through to him but haven't been successful -- and they're hoping this story will serve as a wake-up call.  

Maybe Vegas can reach him -- because, as multiple sources have told us, he's become persona non grata at several of the top spots after his violent outburst this past weekend at JEWEL nightclub at the Aria.

"He's too much of a risk," one high-powered nightclub source tells us ... "He's a good guy, but he's a f***ing mess."

Manziel is still living under the delusion that he'll make it back to the NFL -- and recently talked about his comeback plans with TMZ Sports. But no one has seen him training and when we asked him about it last month, the idea of working out seemed like a joke.

Instead, he continues to party like a maniac -- L.A., Vegas, Miami, Coachella, Dallas -- and, as one source put it, "If he continues this way for much longer he will die.” 

His own father expressed grave concern about Johnny back in February -- saying if he doesn't get help, "he won't live to see his 24th birthday."

We reached out to Manziel's rep -- but she told us there was nothing she could say on the matter.

Floyd Mayweather knows how to throw a party ... just ask his daughter, who turned 16 and got a shindig suitable for royalty.

The bash set Floyd back 7 figures. It went down Saturday ... a BBQ in the afternoon followed by a blow-out at the Mirage Grand Ballroom in Vegas. Performers -- Drake and Future, of course.

Her friends shouldn't bother to even try one-upping her.

0519_Thurman-Thomas_instagramJim KellyBruce Smith and a gang of Buffalo Bills royalty traveled to Mexico ... all to surprise their former teammate, HOF running back Thurman Thomas ... on his 50th birthday.

TMZ Sports spoke to Thurman's wife, Patti Thomas, who says she surprised T.T. with a 5 day Mexican vacation. She invited 70 of his closest friends ... including Bills legends Jim Kelly, Bruce Smith, and Cornelius Bennett.

Oh yeah, Ken Griffey Jr. was there too.

Among the festivities ... a private golf tournament (Thurman's daughter won), some R & R at the pool, and ... French Champagne.

This isn't the first time the Bills have reunited in the 25 years since their first Super Bowl appearance. In February, Kelly and the guys hit up Napa Valley for a wine tasting tour.

Johnny Manziel Tatted and Skinny ... at Vegas Pool Party

5/19/2016 11:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519_johnny_manziel_wet_republic_kicked_out_launch_2While RG3 is taking over the reins in Cleveland, ex-Browns QB Johnny Manziel was raging in Vegas this weekend -- looking skinnier and more tatted than ever. 

Check out these pics of Manziel at a Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand -- where witnesses say he partied and boozed for hours ... but that's not really surprising at this point.

You can see how much Manziel's appearance has changed since he was drafted -- back in 2014, his body was essentially inkless and more jacked.

Clearly, things have changed.

Exclusive Details

0519_ysl_party_inside_photos_launchZoe Kravitz packed 'em in for her performance at a YSL launch party on the Sunset Strip -- and while the famous guests loved the action ... the neighbors did not.

Kelly Osbourne, Hailee Steinfeld, EJ Johnson and model Genevieve Morton (yeah, the hot one in white) were just a few of the celebs there when about 4 cop cars pulled up to the old Tower Records building at 10:30 PM.

We're told at least one normie living in the area wasn't happy about the noise from the event. Too bad for that person -- YSL had a permit to party until 11 PM ... and they did.

Earplugs, bro. Earplugs.

Leonardo Dicaprio Brunettes? I'll Do Them Too

5/18/2016 8:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0518-leonardo-dicaprio-fame-04Two paths diverged for Leonardo DiCaprio on a dance floor in Cannes and Leo took the road less traveled.

Leo had a gorgeous blonde to his right and equally stunning brunette to his left -- in his world ... a typical Tuesday night. His track record with blondes (especially models) is legendary, but this time he thought ... what can brown do for me?

Turns out the dark-haired mystery chick is Georgia Fowler ... Harry Styles' ex ... who is a model, so Leo wasn't straying too far when the pair got cozy.

Turns out you can travel both roads.

Phaedra Parks Son's 6th Bday Bash Family's All Here Except ...

5/18/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0517_phaedra_parks_son_party_launch'RHOA' star Phaedra Parks put her broken marriage with Apollo Nida aside to make sure the entire family was together for their son Ayden's 'TMNT'-themed 6th birthday party, minus Apollo, of course.

Phaedra rented out Stars & Strikes bowling alley over the weekend in ATL, and the guest list was stacked -- 100 of Ayden's closest friends and family, including Apollo's mom. Phaedra's 'RHOA' co-star, Porsha Williams, also showed.

Apollo wasn't there since he's serving 8 years for bank fraud, but Ayden still looked like he had the time of his life, which isn't really hard when you're turning 6 and laser tagging.

Phaedra might've lost some cool mom points in the gift department. She followed up last year's tricked out Mercedes SUV with a $50k deposit into his college savings account.

Good thing Ayden's got 100 more presents to unwrap!

Rihanna Whiskey Makes Me Spend Crazy

5/17/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rihanna's dropping dough all over Texas and one Austin bartender's reaping the benefits. 

RiRi turned up over the weekend at The Lodge on 6th, where she showed the staff mad love. Not that she was boozing out of control -- she had a show the next day -- and her tab was only $82.25.

Still, we're told she left a fat tip of $200 for her barkeep!

Rihanna and her crew weren't there long -- they arrived at 1:15 and stayed until last call, sipping Jameson and Cokes while high-fiving fans. We're told her bodyguards only stepped in to block the restroom when girls tried to follow her.

From bars to strip clubs -- she spends freely, deep in the heart of Texas (clap, clap, clap, clap)!

Rihanna After I Work ... Strippers Go to Work, Work, Work

5/16/2016 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna hopped off her Houston concert stage and beelined it to the main stage at a strip club ... where she was just a spectator -- but a well paying one.

RiRi and Travis Scott -- her opening act -- hit up V Live early Monday morning. Armed with stacks, they rolled in around 3:30 AM and stayed for 2 hours.

We're told she was very generous with about $15k worth of bills ... and you can tell from this video -- the crowd, not just the strippers, ate it up. Though Rihanna seemed to enjoy it the most.

Kylie Jenner Back in the Game

5/13/2016 6:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner didn't miss a beat ... clubbing in WeHo hours after we broke the story ... she's done with Tyga.

The 18-year-old hit up Hyde nightclub -- they serve food so it's ok -- and she walked out with a guy named Harry, but we don't think it's a date thing ... he's been her friend for a long time.

Back on the horse.
